Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina

The larger suite in Reykjavik Marina contains a lifebuoy from the French trawler Cap Fagnet that ran aground just outside Grindavik.

Rescue of the crew of the French trawler Cap Fagnet

Frequent sea accidents and significant loss of life as a result marked the beginning of the efforts of ICE-SAR. Many of the association’s teams on the coast are specialised in search and rescue at sea and along the coastline.

The ultimate testing ground of the sea search and rescue operation of ICE-SAR was the rescue of the crew of the French trawler Cap Fagnet near Grindavik in 1931. Despite howling winds and crashing waves, the team succeeded in saving 38 shipwrecked sailors from drowning. Line-throwing equipment, which ICE-SAR had focused on obtaining for its teams around Iceland, was absolutely vital during the operation. The trawler disappeared beneath the waves as soon as the last crew member had been pulled to safety.

At present, rescue boats and ships of all sizes and types are operated by the association all around Iceland, operated by hardy and well-trained crews.
